EASTON/OTLEY STUDENTS CREATE SALTMARSH TRANSECTS

Otley 05-03-15 (3) Otley 05-03-15 (2) Otley 05-03-15 (4)First year students from the nearby college at Otley have spent a day at Stanny Field Centre, where they undertook to mark out two saltmarsh transects (one of Stanny Farm and one on the next door farm of Robert Skepper).

The objective behind this exercise was that besides the students learning a new method of practical fieldwork there was also the opportunity for each new first year class every year to repeat the fieldwork task thereby creating a simple monitoring method for these two areas of valuable habitat, much under threat from climate change.
